Media One Hotel Dubai Reviews
Recommended in Media/Internet city area Feb 01, 2013
If you're coming for business and need a place to stay in Dubai Internet City/Dubai Media City, I think it's a great choice. Taxi drivers know the location well, it's easily accessible from Sheikh Zayed Rd. There's Va Piano restaurant right next to it, so you have an option go dine outside of the hotel without hussle. I liked the pool very much, it's one of the nicest ones in this range of hotels.
Staff is very friendly helping around with whatever you might need during your first days in Dubai (transportation, practical tips). I didn't have any issue with changing my room when I have asked for it (the first one i was given was very cold and couldn't really manage that with air-con).
I really didn't experience anything negative in this hotel. However, one of my collegues mentioned his room being very loud, so it might worth to ask for one far from the bar/restaurant area.
+ swimming pool
+ breakfast (partially fixed and partially daily menu)
- no discount rate has been offered for an extended stay

Nice Hotel for the price Aug 05, 2011
The hotel is very nicely decorated in a very modern style. Even the elevator is worth a snapshot.
Its centrally located in the newer areas of Dubai (newer meaning post Deira (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Deira,_Dubai) era and not on the Sheikh Zayed main road.
If you are staying on business, the Media City and Knowledge Village are at your doorsteps.
If you are really adventurous and its not summer (Mai-Sept.) you could walk to the beach.
One can reach the marina or the palm stem within a few minutes taxi ride. However walking to any sights in not an option as the hotel is located in business / educational areas.
The rooms are not enormous, but there are clean and modern. Most of the hotels in Dubai have smoking rooms and Media One is no exception. If you are a militant non-smoker you should request a non-smoking room.
The bathroom is enclosed in glass and is easily viewed from the bed. If you are pee-shy you should be aware of this. The glass is however glazed so you are provided a minimum of privacy.
I paid 425 AED (80€) which is quite reasonable for the location.
I did not try the food, but there restaurant is very busy in the evening and is standard buffet fair for Dubai, which means be careful not to over-eat as the selection makes one feel almost guilty for being offered so much luxury.
